Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Danielle Rowley: I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way. I look forward to campaigning with him in Scotland in the upcoming election, but, as he will know, one crucial thing in this election will be the turnout and ensuring that we get as many people out and using their votes as possible. In Scotland especially, it is very dark and very cold. Does he support the idea of having polling day as a public...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Hydraulic Fracturing (22 Oct 2019)

Danielle Rowley: Definitely not, Mr Speaker. No offence to the hon. Gentleman. The decisions that we take over the next year will be critical in preventing climate change from becoming irreversible. The Committee on Climate Change has said that fracking on a significant scale is not compatible with UK climate targets. It increases local air pollution, generates huge volumes of chemical waste water, causes...

Defence: Commonwealth Veterans (21 Oct 2019)

Danielle Rowley: Penicuik in Midlothian is home to the Royal Highland Fusiliers at Glencorse barracks, and the battalion has had a number of serving Commonwealth soldiers, particularly from Fiji. Commonwealth citizens have made significant contributions to the defence of the UK throughout history, and continue to do so. I appreciate the warm words from the Minister and that he has had conversations, but is it...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Danielle Rowley: Many constituents and businesses in Midlothian have contacted me, and they are very worried about the grave danger of a no-deal Brexit and the effect it would have. What does my right hon. Friend think about the effect of a no-deal Brexit on our people and businesses across the country?

Workplace Deaths: Scotland (24 Jul 2019)

Danielle Rowley: The Minister talks about Britain’s record on workplace safety. Given that, does he agree that when contracts go out to procurement, particularly in the green jobs sector, we must look at what we can do to support jobs staying locally, so that such jobs are good, local and unionised, and we can ensure that workers are protected?

Inequality and Social Mobility (12 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: I am interested in hearing more about how the Secretary of State, or her Department, plans to measure social mobility and poverty because often it is based on income, rather than wellbeing. Constituents who come to my surgeries week after week are fed up of hearing from the Government in the media that poverty is going down and employment is going up when they are in such desperate situations...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: I swear that, for the past few times that I have spoken, the time limit has been reduced just before me, but I do not blame you, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is truly an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Blaenau Gwent (Nick Smith) who just gave such an emotional and personal speech. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Grahame Morris) for his speech and for the debate...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: My hon. Friend is right that this has to be an intergenerational debate. We have to show solidarity with retired miners and their families. I am so proud to be from a mining community, but also from a mining family. Both my grandfathers were miners. In fact, my granda Ron Curran celebrated his 92nd birthday with me on Saturday, and it was a great event. He always fought for justice for...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: It has been really good to see the solidarity shown from both sides of the House on this issue. Earlier, the hon. Gentleman mentioned investment in pit areas. Miners typically stay in those areas and invest in them, and not only do retired miners tend to stay in the areas where they worked; they also give so much back. There are some fantastic retired miners and widows of miners in my area,...

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: My hon. Friend is bang on. These are absolutely deferred wages. This is money that belongs to retired miners. The Under-Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the hon. Member for Pendle (Andrew Stephenson) has already committed to exploring options on a cross-party basis, but will he commit today to meeting ex-miners, the NUM, pension trustees and Members across the...

International Development: Topical Questions (6 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: I am pleased to hear the Secretary of State’s global approach to climate change, but we know that vulnerable communities in the global south are hit hardest by extreme weather events caused by climate change. How will he use his global influence to work with other funding countries to make sure that vital financial support goes to those countries that have suffered such loss and damage?

Universal Credit and Debt — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (5 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Ruth George) on securing this debate, on her fantastic speech, and on her fantastic, dedicated work on welfare. She is a tireless campaigner. As many of today’s contributions and evidence from Citizens Advice Scotland have shown, debt is built into the universal credit system. My hon. Friend the Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth...

Trade Union Access to Workplaces — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (4 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: My hon. Friend is giving a detailed analysis and a great speech. Does he agree that there is less trade union membership in the third sector? It is often seen to be the nice sector, but it employs a lot of young people and women, and we need to encourage more trade union membership within it.

Trade Union Access to Workplaces — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (4 Jun 2019)

Danielle Rowley: My hon. Friend mentions the construction industry. I have a constituent who found that she is blacklisted not only from a particular company but from the whole sector and is therefore unable to get employment in the field she is an expert in, all because of her trade union activity. Does he agree that that has to be wiped out? We cannot have people unable to get work because of trade union...
